New to our church?
Whether you have worshiped with us several times or are thinking about coming to Sacred Light of Christ, we hope you will join us. We want you to know what to expect so we have outlined some of the things you will experience in a worship service.
What should I expect?
Sacred Light of Christ is a safe environment for people who are exploring what a relationship with God can be. Everything we do is designed to be relevant and relational. If you have no church background, have been away from church for a while, or if you have been bruised, bored, beaten up, or burned out on church, this is for you. We invite you to join us knowing that you are welcome to sit anywhere you are comfortable (even if it’s in the back row), take it in, and get involved at your own pace.
Although our worship may be different from what you’re accustomed to, we are proud to be a church that sets aside differences in worship style and tradition, embracing the full range of Christian expression – uniting Christians from all different backgrounds! We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So, dress casually, wear your rainbow sandals if you want and you’ll fit right in.
For those who are not yet fully committed to following Jesus Christ (also known as seekers), there will be no pressure at Sacred Light of Christ to conform to any preconceived expectations. You will not be expected to live a “Christian lifestyle” while you are actively seeking God at Sacred Light of Christ. That does not mean that God has no standards. But we recognize that God has His own schedule for your life and our church does not have the right to determine or dictate what that is. Simply put, we don not expect anyone who is not yet fully committed to following Jesus to act like a Christ-follower. We want you to feel safe and to be yourself.
But, be prepared… if you explore long enough, you will find what you are looking for and God will transform you from the inside out. Then your life will change because you want it to.
How do I get involved?
Get started by attending a worship service or any other offered activity. Sacred Light of Christ is a safe place to worship and interact with other Christians. Then, attend again. It usually takes more than one time to make friends!
